Wedding entertainment


Ok, all you lovely mooks.  I'm starting to get a bit stressed cos the wedding is July and we've not booked a band for the evening yet.

We decided that we'd like a swing style band for our reception but one that would play some more up to date stuff as well. We like our 50s, 60s, rat pack music but we want a good variety as well. Don't want a cheesy DJ.

We're in Scotland and I trawled through the magic agency website and narrowed down to a band called Monaco but they are booked already. They gave us a couple of other bands who would be available but to be honest, I just don't like any of them.

I don't want a "wedding band", the kind that every song sounds the same and the singer is little more than a karaoke queen (or king) on the mic. I want a band that can play well, entertain the guests but not be too centre-stage iykwim. Put it this way, I don't want a Robbie Williams wannabe strutting about taking all the focus!

I'm so hard to please, I know!

I got a suggestion for a band called Ernest who are apparently one of the best professional wedding bands in Scotland...I don't like them, I listened and the guy's voice just annoys me!

PLLLLEEEEAAAAAAAAAASE!!!!! Any suggestions! Anyone know people in bands who do this kind of thing?  Brothers, cousins, mums, any of you mooks?!  We can't have a huge band - the stage will only hold maybe a 4-piece at most...and we're budgeting around £600-£700 to play from about 8pm til just before midnight!

Too far away from Scotland to be any real help, but maybe try to look for local bands which plays that type of music instead of looking for "wedding bands" ?

Thanks for the links.

I'm just going through any bands I can at the moment, I tend to find that "wedding bands" just pops up loads of those cheesy cover bands who murder every song!

For example, I had no problems with organizing music. I have been looking for a photographer for a long time. I needed our photo session with my husband and so that the photographer would stay for the whole evening.
